    Wondering whether anyone else is seeing this?
    I havnt changed anything in the meantime and i have noticed that one of my websites regained position on Yahoo. It was first all the time and it is third now again after being a while no where to be found on yahoo. Im targetting multiple keywords, single or plural. This website is a dutch website.

    I have been going and coming to top 10 last week. But today gone again after being in top10 for 3 days. I'm starting to believe this is yahoo sandbox.

    Also today my clients site came back to top 20.

    My best guess as well. Some sort of a sandbox just like Google. And it wouldnt suprise me if MSN has one as well.

    When the YST emails me saying that yes I was banned (or in their words, "there is a judgement against your site") then I find it hard to believe I'm going to regain any position ever.

    They DO allow you to submit for a re-review but only ONCE. If you don't pass that time, you are screwed.

    Here is what I love:

    Yahoo: "We want quality sites and relevant content in our index and your site may be in violation of our Guidelines."

    Me: "OK, I respect that. If you don't like something about my site, tell me what it is so I can fix it. You do want quality sites right? Let me fix what you don't like."

    Yahoo: "We don't offer any specifics as to the nature of the judgement of your site."

    Me: "I understand that there are certain trade secrets that you don't want to divulge. But is it links? Is it page content? Can you even give me a page that may be in question? I wont even argue with you about it. I'd be happy to eliminate the page altogether if it will get me back in."

    Yahoo: "We don't offer any specifics as to the nature of the judgement of your site but you can submit your site for a re-review."

    Me: "I'll submit my site but if I don't know what to fix, how do I know if I will be rejected again? I've checked the Guidelines and I can't see where I am in violation."

    Yahoo: "We don't offer any specifics as to the nature of the judgement of your site. Please view our content Guidelines."


    It is this kind of brainless customer service that I think most businesses are really upset about (if you can get a response from them at all).
